Thanks to a special 15-minute preview of the film, we now know what his cameo is in Scott Derrickson’s Doctor Strange. If you find such news spoiler then I recommend you look away now.
It’s always fun to see Lee pop up in these Marvel movies and in weird characters. It’s a fun little treat to see him in the universe he created and the filmmakers always try to give him a little comedic flare.
The following information involving Lee’s scene in Doctor Strange comes from CB. Marvel recently showed off a 15 minute preview of the film to select press in the UK, and that is where his cameo was revealed:
“In what looks like one of the most epic foot chases in cinematic history, Doctor Strange and Mordo are running down streets, up building sides, and across the sky as the world warps around them. After Kaecilius bends the building on which Mordo and Strange are running, they fall to the ground and into the side of a bus. As they fall, the camera angle switches to a point of view from inside the bus, revealing Stan Lee reading Aldous Huxley’s The Doors of Perception.
“As Strange and Mordo smash into the bus’ window, Lee bursts out saying, ‘Now, that’s hilarious!’ until the camera swaps again and the chase continues.”
CB suggest that Lee’s cameo may have been cut short for the preview screening and that it could be extended a few seconds longer in the theatrical cut of the film.
Doctor Strange will hit theaters on November 4th!
